Grave difficulties are frequently encountered when it becomes necessary, because of business mergers, to pool two or more previously separate groups of employees under a single seniority system. Because of the importance of seniority in the transportation industries, these difficulties have been exceptionally acute there. The authors of this study detail the varying and complex arrangements which have been made in efforts to integrate seniority lists in railroad, airline, and trucking mergers. They show that this has been principally an internal union problem, the solution to which is affected by such factors as level of employment, and the age, nature, and structure of the unions involved.
